PONTIAN (Bernama): Despite being visually impaired, six pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan Pendidikan Khas Jalan Batu, Kuala Lumpur were determined to experience the annular solar eclipse phenomenon at Tanjung Piai National Park near here on Thursday (Dec 26).

Although they could not see, the six, three girls and three boys, could still experience the phenomenon with the help of teaching aids and a light-sound device created by Harvard University in America and redeveloped by Apadilangit, a non-governmental organisation.
